Why listen to podcasts about death and grieving?

While it may seem like a strange topic to add to your podcast rotation, death is a fact of life that affects everybody at some point or another. 

Even if you’re not actively dealing with the concept of mortality at this moment in life, there’s great value in becoming comfortable with the concept of death – whether it’s your death or that of a loved one. 

Developing a healthy relationship to death can also greatly help with the grieving process when a loved one passes away. If you’ve done the work of getting comfortable with the concept of death, you’ve already laid a lot of groundwork in the grieving process.
